Looks great! Are the decals original? I have one just like it sn# 350xxx so how did you know yours was an '82?

Re: 1982 Redline Proline

I'm no Redline expert by any means, but 82 was the best I could figure out from all the mixed information on Redline SN's.  Also had to consider chrome finish, HT size, lack of brace between chainstays behind BB, etc.  Could also possibly be 81; def. not 83 or later. 

Not original decals.  When I got it, it was bare and the chrome was dull & had some rust spots.  Steel wool, toothpaste, wet sanding to 1600, etc. brought back the shine.  But I like your white one better ;)

My white one in the museum is a 78/79 sn# 17,xxx.

I have a chrome F&F like yours that I will get to one day along with a half dozen other unfinished projects. lol
I would guess 81/82 for yours and mine as well.
Anyhow great job on the resto; I never heard of using toothpaste.

Re: 1982 Redline Proline

Thanks again!  Looking forward to seeing yours too.  Toothpaste (white paste kind, not gel) is a very nice, very mild abrasive which also has the added benefit of washing off with water.  Works just like a cut & polish compound.  And its totally non-toxic - you could almost eat it. ;)
